It began from a friendly chat at Watiya Complex between co-workers from exchange branches who agreed to organize a get-together for all Filipinos working in remittance / money exchange. It was successfully organized on January 9, 2013 with the cooperation of some bank representatives.
This is how the Filipino Kuwait Remittance Association (FKRA) was born. Meetings and events followed and it has been a year since then. They held their anniversary party on January 9, 2014 at the Carlton Hotel in Kuwait City.
